Hello all. I am new here but am looking to purchase the G75VW-AS71 from amazon within the next few weeks and I was wondering if you guys had any advice for me for when I get the computer? Any advice related to gaming as well? I have read other threads of problems and hopefully this config doesnt have anything wrong with it. Im also curious as to how well the nvidia gtx660m is at playing games on at least mid/high settings and if theres any FPS improvements overclocking? I will probably own the PC for about 2-3 years before upgrading to something else. Also if you know of a better deal on a laptop then this one then please let me know. Please and thank you!

OC'ing will get you a performance increase, though I would test the system first and see if you really need the OC. It can be done, but it must be done carefully. There is a 670M model which offers better performance, but the battery life is lower and the temps are higher. You can OC a 660M to basically 670M speeds, but the 670M can be OC'd (though not as much) to be even faster. Still, the systems are really fast! :)

Nice! So you think the gtx 660x would be fine for most modern games on medium to high settings maybe more depending on OC ect?

Yes, with OC on my G55 660M I can play Crysis 3 on High settings.

That said, since you are getting a 17" anyway why not go for the 670M? That is a step above 660M so you can play the latest games High to Very High with OC.

Also, you should get an SSD at least, for the mSATA slot.

For such a powerful machine as these ROG laptops, SSD is very important.

Nice! You think you could refer me to a link or links for a gtx 670 config laptop for around 1300$ or less?
